Cynical Truth / Bio

Cynical Truth was born in Detroit resurrected in south Florida and now back in Detroit. ..

Rob & Al, who grew up in Detroit only about a mile from each other, are the songwriting/production team that comprises Cynical Truth. Rob by way of Berkley School of Music spent many years performing and songwriting in the fertile Boston music scene. Al had majored in music at the University of Michigan, took a side trip into broadcast and studio engineering, shared the stage with music greats in Detroit and Florida ultimately becoming a respected bassist/vocalist/engineer/producer.

Rob & Al where writing and arranging songs for a band project when almost predictably, the band fell apart. Having been through this before, with an earlier Detroit project, it dawned on them why let the band concept get in the way? The Cynical Truth was they had the skills needed to get it all done. The new songs were just too good to shelve; besides they were having way too much fun to stop and look for new members. Less than 6 months later the result is the 10 original songs on Self Inflicted.

As to how they wound up in South Florida well, that’s another story…

Self Inflicted is the result of Rob & Al’s intense collaboration they hope you like it. Stay tuned, don’t touch that dial there is more on the way, ‘cause the Cynical Truth is why the hell not?
